Reviews of Terra Incognita

There is one review of Terra Incognita.
Terra Incognita opens with bergamot, caraway, dense and tasty flowers (I only spotted jasmine, there is also peony and freesia, however it's a floral accord on the fresh-crisp side), on a base of patchouli, amber, sweet sandalwood and a discrete note of waxy, rooty vetiver. I think I also get the papyrus note although I don't know what it is made of exactly - I guess it's synthetic, but it's good. Basing on the notes it may look like a common and simple fragrance, but it's not: it's a really thick, dense, aromatic – not exactly "opulent", just more tasty, incredibly compelling and harmonic floral-ambery Oriental with earthy nuances and a rich, juicy heart (perhaps the peach note and some facets of flowers). What amazes me is how it manages to smell incredibly "compact", yet revealing a lot of nuances and facets – the warmth of amber blending with the warmer-sweeter side of woods, whose drier and darker side is instead enhanced by the earthiness of patchouli, and then the breezy balsamic scent of flowers, spices and leaves floating all over... a lot of notes, an aromatic fragrant journey on a woody-spicy-floral-resinous Oriental caravan. Parisa on Fragrantica correctly recalled Parfum d'Empire, I also thought of that house, there is quite a lot of similarities. Really pleasant, not the most original around but really good and enjoyable.
